Setting margins is easy with this trick
i been using photoshop for almost 7 years never had a problem with it until know it may sound kind of stupid but how do i change the margins in photoshop like in microsoft word does.
I'm trying to print something with exactly measurments and photoshop is not letting me change them under the file/page set up the margins appear but i can't change them there are grey out -- trying to have a marging of .125 all around the page thank you for your time...
Jose, you didn't say WHICH version of Photoshop you're using, nor which computer/OS you're using. You should always include those necessary bits of info. So we'll have to assume it's in the CS family under Windows.
Choose the "Print Preview" command...
File > Print With Preview
or Ctrl+Alt+P (Cmd/Option/P for Mac)
There you'll see a dialog with a moveable image, handles and inch markers to set the page layout you desire.
If the image is larger, there's also a "Scaled Print Size" section where you scale to fit.
Make sure you select the specific printer you're using. Mac users can enjoy OS X automatic printer configure and settings download that assures the very latest drivers for your printer are in use.
We have become accustomed to a slightly different method since the early pinnings of Photoshop were really cranky on precision layout. (Keep in mind that Photoshop is an image editing program, NOT a publishing program even though Adobe wants you to believe otherwise. (You do not lay the sidewalk with the cement mixer... the cement mixer is for mixing the cement.)
For those demanding print jobs, set the page size to be the paper size at the resolution you desire. Now you can position the image precisely on the page where you want it. When printing, then the image does the work and NOT the page setup or printer. Remember: "What you see is what you get"
